President Donald Trump has reorganized the National Security Council, and his Chief Strategist Stephen Bannon is apparently no longer on the Principals Committee, according to a memo that has surfaced. The document shows no role for Bannon and a reduced role for Homeland Security Adviser Tom Bossert. Poor Bannon, a babe in the Woods, ambushed by the wolf pack. He was an amateur at the DC Power Game.
And…this news is via yet another ‘leak’. Trump’s White House is like the Titanic. Now, Obama’s White House never had to worry about leaks because the mainstream media hid anything exposed and a lot of stuff was exposed by whistle blowers using Wikileaks.
But the mainstream fake media kept a lid on anything Obama and the DNC wanted dead and buried.
Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Marine General Joseph Dunford, are again considered “regular attendees” of the principals committee.
All these guys are the ‘old guard’. On the other hand, this is the ‘other old guard’ not the Bilderberg gang guard.
Coats will be the fifth person to serve as director of national intelligence, a job the U.S. created after the 9/11 attacks.
Daniel Ray “Dan” Coats (born May 16, 1943) is an American politician who is currently serving as the 5th Director of National Intelligence, under the Trump Administration. Coats previously served as a United States Senator from Indiana from 1989 to 1999, and again from 2011 to 2017, as the United States Ambassador to Germany from 2001 until 2005, and as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from 1981 until 1989.
Born in Jackson, Michigan, Coats graduated from Wheaton College in Illinois and Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law. He served in the U.S. Army from 1966 to 1968. Before serving in the U.S. Senate, Coats was a member of the United States House of Representatives, representing Indiana’s 4th congressional district from 1981 to 1989. He was appointed to fill the Senate seat vacated by Dan Quayle following Quayle’s election as Vice President of the United States in 1988. Coats won the 1990 special election to serve the remainder of Quayle’s unexpired term, as well as the 1992 election for a full six-year term. He did not seek reelection in 1998, and was succeeded by Evan Bayh.
After retiring from the Senate, Coats served as U.S. Ambassador to Germany from 2001 to 2005, and then worked as a lobbyist in Washington, D.C. He was re-elected to the Senate by a large margin in 2010, succeeding Bayh, who announced his own retirement shortly after Coats declared his candidacy. Coats declined to run for re-election in 2016, and was succeeded by Todd Young.
On January 5, 2017, Coats was announced as incoming President Donald Trump’s nominee for the post of Director of National Intelligence, to succeed James R. Clapper.
This is what I call ‘old fashioned Midwest conservative’. Sort of middle of the road, has been in and out of DC for much of his life, knows everyone socially. And Insider. Bannon and Trump are both outsiders and when it comes to government, amateurs.
It appears that Mike Pence who is an insider, is the one who persuaded Trump to choose Coats since they know each other very well. Trump, being an outsider, doesn’t have the inside gage of what is going on.
Coats pledges to work with lawmakers on probe into Russia which didn’t alarm me at the time due to the fact that any investigation so far has turned up nothing…except for the explosive information that Obama and his gang were the ones breaking the laws and doing the spying!
I call this ‘a circular firing squad.’ All these investigations are turning on the DC Bilderberg gang and I assume this will continue.
“It’s our responsibility to provide you access” to sources and raw intelligence, Coats told Sen. Mark R. Warner (Va.), the Senate Intelligence Committee’s lead Democrat, during his confirmation hearing to become director of national intelligence.
The Indiana Republican noted that Russia has “a long history” of propaganda and trying to influence elections and that recent events suggest Kremlin officials “have stepped up their game.”
Yes, all the DC Old Guard Insiders all are seeped in Cold War Ideology. I consider this NORMAL for them. I am aghast at the DNC YOUNG PEOPLE who are indulging in this noxious poison because they were mostly born after the USSR was dying or dead and long gone.
Why would they all fall for this crap? Obviously, it is stupid. All DC insiders are dumbed down by this storyline, it is nearly universal thanks to our media giants lying about things and the US eager to blame others for the messes caused by our own rulers.
I wrote in the past about the Tar Baby story whereby the victim fights with a baby made out of tar and the more the Brer Rabbit hit, the deeper he was stuck.
That is our elites and top people yet we cannot run DC without these many Brer Rabbits who control things there. Outsiders have a hard haul, trying to do any of this. It is a Byzantine maze.
Consider Reagan who was less an outsider than Trump: he was nearly killed in less than a year and spent his time not running anything at all, he just was the smiley face in the White House.
Coats’s audience before the Intelligence Committee offered a rare chance to see the dynamics of the panel — which conducts most of its processes in secret — on display. The last time the committee held an open hearing, it was to grill then-Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.), Trump’s pick for CIA director.
Note this other pick was the Old Midwest Guard. Interesting that Congress is taking over these positions…and not from either coast or the states that voted for Hillary, do note.
